Food & Beverage
Look for elevated cuisine at the urban brasserie, Adelaide, and small plates and cocktails at Van Ryder when visiting or meeting at the new dual-branded hotels in Salt Lake City. Located on the ground floor, Adelaide serves French- and New Orleans-inspired foods with Cajun undertones and has a full bar, oyster and raw bar, private dining room, and outdoor patio space.
The more casual Van Ryder is the first full-scale hotel rooftop experience in Salt Lake City and offers sweeping views of the city and Wasatch Mountains. The name is a salute to Jack “The Rambling Kid” Van Ryder, an American cowboy and western artist. Menu options include artisan-crafted libations and cocktail cuisine, and a private dining area is available for groups.
Executive Chef Jacqueline Siao is overseeing the food and beverage program, bringing more than 15 years of culinary experience to the position. She previously served as executive chef at W Aspen in Colorado.
